In an isolated mountain town in Norway, Haakon dreams of traveling the world, pursuing adventure, seeing great cities, finding love. His very first trip to London with friends from university offers much promise, yet soon after tragedy strikes. Still young, and mourning the loss of his lover, Haakon is not ready to give up on his dream, so when a rich Englishman offers him the chance to join him on a tour of the world, Haakon takes it, daring to believe that his dream is finally coming true...but at what price?

The Fallen Angels of Karnataka is a novel filled with adventure, life's hard-learned lessons, loss, despicable evil, and finally, love and redemption. See what others are saying about The Fallen Angels of Karnataka on the author's media page here.

Excerpt


Athens

“As the flight was approaching Ellinikon International Airport, the captain announced that they would be passing over the city center, providing those sitting on the right-hand side of the plane with a stunning view of the Acropolis. Always sitting by the window, Haakon woke from his reveries and looked out. There it was, right below him. One of the most revered ancient building sites, sitting atop a hill overlooking downtown Athens. The city itself was amazing to look at with endless gray and whitewashed buildings, tightly packed and filling up almost all empty space on the ground in between the many hills surrounding Athens. And right in the middle was the temple complex of the Acropolis. It was a beautiful sight. Haakon could barely wait to climb the hill and look at the site up close. 

Ten minutes later, the plane landed safely with the Aegean Sea to the left and the city outskirts to the right. Haakon was to meet Charles at the hotel in Athens later in the afternoon, because he was still on his way in from Paris. After picking up his luggage, Haakon took a taxi to the Hilton, where they were going to stay while in Athens. The journey took about half an hour in the dense city traffic. It was an unusually clear day in a city often plagued by heavy smog, due to being tucked in between the surrounding hills. Haakon presumed that it must’ve just rained, because the air had a fresh, clear and humid smell to it. Or maybe it was because it was winter. He wasn’t sure. One thing he knew for certain: he did love his room. From the balcony, he enjoyed an unobstructed view of the Acropolis. He was about two miles away, and it was stunning. Haakon decided to take the opportunity to walk there right away, not knowing if Charles would want to climb the hill. If he did, he’d get to see it again. If not, at least he’d been there. 

On his way to the Acropolis, Haakon walked by the site of the first Olympic Games in modern time, the Panathenaic Stadium, built completely from white marble. He could almost imagine how it must have looked, which isn’t very surprising, since it had been built on the remains of an ancient site.”

Author Hans M. Hirschi

Hans M Hirschi (b. 1967) has been writing stories ever since he was a child. Adulthood and the demands of corporate life efficiently put an end to his fictional writing for over twenty years.
A global executive in training and channel development, Hans has traveled the world and had previously published non-fictional titles.
The birth of his son and the subsequent parental leave provided him with the opportunity to unleash his creative writing once again. With little influence over his brain’s creative workings, he indulges it, going with the flow.
A deeply rooted passion for, faith in a better world, in love, tolerance and diversity are a red thread throughout both his creative and non-fictional work. His novels might best be described as “literary romance, engaging characters and relevant stories that won’t leave you untouched, but hopeful.”
Hans is a proud member of the Swedish Writers’ Union, the Writers’ Center in Sweden and serves as chair of the Swedish Federation of Self- & Independent Publishers.
